Event description


Have you ever read material that was incomprehensible, and as a result, you were left unpersuaded to act? I guess we all have, haven't we?

But, how would you feel, if you had been the Author?

About the Program

That's a frightening thought, isn't it? In our view, a Persuasive Writer sees the challenge through the lens of their audience. They're Empathetic, and that insight drives the coverage of this Program.

To Persuade, we need to skilfully use our words in ways that others find appealing. Whether we drive them forward using science & data, or tug them back using heartfelt emotions, the way we use language is critical.

Yet as Mark Anthony implored, to Understand they first need to "lend us their ears". Effective writing is architecture that creates space for others to read. It is structured around sound grammar that conveys real meaning.

Given the dialectic between Reader & Writer, we'll embrace an emotionally intelligent approach to think about the Message. You'll explore what helps a Reader to read then understand text. We'll move on to make that message much more persuasive, such that your Reader is motivated to act.

This will enable you to have greater impact amongst the audience for whom you are writing.
